A Big Welcome to KY and PA Students

Kentucky and Pennsylvania are now members of the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA) -- meaning residents in those states can enroll in Rio Salado online courses.

This brings the current total number of SARA states to 44 as well as the District of Columbia. The National Council for SARA defines SARA as, "a voluntary agreement among its member states and U.S. territories that establishes comparable national standards for interstate offering of post secondary distance-education."

SARA makes it easy for students to take online college courses in another state and also helps with improving consumer protection.

As more states partake in SARA, Rio can increase its efforts to help students learn, grow, prepare, and kick-start their careers.

Connecticut and New York passed legislation toward SARA membership-- so keep your eyes open for news on those states in the future!
